Jordy Nelson reportedly avoids serious quad injury, ’50-50′ for Sunday vs. Bengals

Sep

Limited Kids Los Angeles Kings Jersey When Jordy Nelson hobbled off the field during the first quarter of last week’s loss to the Falcons, Packers fans likely skipped a heart beat in terror.

Nelson, who missed the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL, never returned to Sunday’s game after being ruled questionable by the team.

According to ESPN.com, Packers fans can breathe a sigh of relief because Nelson was able to avoid a serious quad injury. He remains 50-50 to play this Sunday against the Bengals.

It’s still insane to me that after all of these years he’s never missed a snap, his wife, Annie Thomas, told ESPN earlier in the week. It’s just a testament to the man he is: reliable, dedicated, and mentally and physically tough.

The Browns gained 9 yards on the run by Crowell, who followed Thomas through a hole to begin Cleveland’s second series.

Thomas’ streak is awe-inspiring among his peers and believed to be the longest streak in NFL history. But the former Wisconsin tackle says he just shows up every day to do his job, which the 32-year-old has done now in 162 career games.

Earlier in the fourth quarter, Stafford lofted a deep out narrowly over Brian Poole to Tate to move the chains on third-and-4, setting up a 57-yard Matt Prater field goal that brought the Lions to within four points of the Falcons.

NFL players wear helmets on the field and often hide behind cliches off the field.

Unlike their NBA and MLB counterparts, NFL players wear helmets that both provide anonymity and a place to hide when things don’t go well.

Displays such as the one rookie Zay Jones put on in front of his locker room following the Buffalo Bills’ 9-3 loss Sunday to the Carolina Panthers are unexpected in the NFL.

These men are gladiators, and gladiators don’t cry, even after a heartbreaking loss where, despite an inept showing from the offense for the first 58 minutes, the Bills STILL had a chance to earn a strong non-conference win.

With the game’s outcome still in doubt, Buffalo was mounting a potential game-winning touchdown drive, moving to the Carolina 33-yard line.

Limited Youth Tommy Wingels Jersey Facing a fourth-and-11, Tyrod Taylor dropped back and lofted a flawed pass in the direction of Jones, who was running a corner route into the end zone.

The NFLPA filed a lawsuit against the NFL before the appeal ended and added a motion asking for an injunction. Harold Henderson, who was the arbitrator assigned by Goodell to hear the appeal, upheld the league’s decision and Elliott’s suspension.

Judge Amos Mazzant, a federal judge in Texas, decided to grant Elliott’s injunction on Friday.

You could call it a defensive slugfest if you want to be generous, but in truth it was a poorly played game. Neither offense was in sync, with the Bengals stinking up the joint for the second week in a row. The Texans tried their best to hide Watson, but their running backs rarely found holes against Cincinnati’s defensive line. The result was a meandering punt fest that won’t help Thursday Night Football’s low reputation.

In the end, the Texans get in the win column for the first time this season, while the Bengals are dangerously verging towards a full-on crisis. Here are four things we learned from the game.

Dolphins-Buccaneers game moved to November as Hurricane Irma approaches

Sep

The Dolphins-Buccaneers game scheduled for Sunday in Miami has been postponed until Nov. 19, the NFL announced Wednesday.

With Hurricane Irma bearing down on Florida and evacuations beginning in the Florida Keys and the Miami area, the league decided to move the game to what had been a mutual bye for the two teams in Week 11. The NFL had said Tuesday the game would not be played in Miami on Sunday; the other alternative was to keep the game this weekend but play it at a neutral site.

Brooks Reed saved the game with his second sack of Mike Glennon in the waning seconds with the Bears in position to score the game-winning TD. Given the limitations of Chicago’s offense, it was a little disappointing to see the Bears move the ball so well at times. Still, holding off a comeback was a good start for a young, fast unit that’s closer to jelling.

With the Patriots losing and the Dolphins not playing, the Bills are alone in first place in the division. Games against the Panthers, Broncos and Falcons — and not the NFL’s junior varsity team — will help curb that enthusiasm.

After all, he once was one of them.

The Bill Polian who worked his way into the Pro Football Hall of Fame by crafting a Super Bowl winner and perpetual playoff roster in Indianapolis was an improved version of the Bill Polian who had top executive roles in Buffalo and Carolina.

Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga treated the first NFL regular-season game played outside of North America as a landmark event.

Paul Posluszny Mens Jersey
While the quality of play was forgettable, the atmosphere was anything but. Giants long snapper Zak DeOssie, along with Manning one of two players still active with the Giants, recalls seeing a smorgasbord of jerseys representing all 32 teams, it seemed.

It was incredible, DeOssie said. At the time, I was just doing punt snaps, but I’ve never seen a crowd so excited for field goals and kickoffs. Lawrence Tynes (the Giants’ place-kicker and born in Scotland) felt like a superstar. I think the crowd was more excited for kickoffs than touchdowns.

Gerald Hodges Jersey Then-Dolphins defensive coordinator Dom Capers, now with the Green Bay Packers, said Huizenga flew out all the wives and families of the coaches and rented out the Tower of London for a team party.

Wayne went overboard and treated it almost like a Super Bowl, Capers said.

Benedetto told the court one firm even touted itself as being able to coach former players on how to take neurological tests to get inaccurate results to qualify them for payments.

The settlement, which took effect in January, resolved thousands of lawsuits that accused the NFL of hiding what it knew about the risks of repeated concussions.

It covers retired players who develop Lou Gehrig’s disease, dementia or other neurological problems believed to be caused by concussions suffered during their pro careers, with awards as high as $5 million for the most serious cases. Participants had to register by Aug. 7, and Seeger told the court Tuesday that over 20,000 had registered by the deadline.

Travis Kelce fined $12k for punching Kyle Van Noy in the crotch with the football

NFL players must be careful around Travis Kelce. Or at least cover those sensitive areas.

In the middle of a pile, Kelce was clearly fed up with the Patriots’ Kyle Van Noy and stuck the pigskin right in his crotch. It literally took Van Noy off of his feet. It came after Van Noy was pushing Kelce’s helmet into the ground, so of course, he retaliated.

The NFL fined Kelce $12,154 for it, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

The penalty came after Alex Smith hit Kelce with an 8-yard pass. Kelce was penalized for taunting — a 10-yard penalty enforced at Kansas City’s own 21-yard line.

Kelce’s had some other bad penalties in the past. Last season, he threw his towel at the referee like a penalty flag. He also laid down a vicious push on the Steelers’ Ross Cockrell.

It’s just Kelce being Kelce.

Result: Cam Newton went 18-of-33 in passing for 194 yards with one interception, one passing touchdown and a 69.5 passer rating. He was sacked three times (one by Miller, one by DeMarcus Ware and another split between Ware and Todd Davis) for a loss of 18 yards. Newton was hit James Conner Womens Jersey eight times, had six of his passes broken up and didn’t complete a pass targeted for over 20 yards.

DeMarcus Ware retired, but the sentiment is still the same: Denver knows how T.J. Ward Youth Jersey to get after the passer. The defense is built for it, Vance Joseph is a great defensive mind, and their personnel is likely the best in all of football.

Sure, Dak hasn’t looked great. But, take a deep breath. What other defense is designed to shut down the Cowboys in the way that the Giants are? What other defense possesses the talent that the Broncos have? Dak will have opportunities to find his rhythm with his receivers and bounce back.

Week 1 NFL picks against spread: Seahawks clip Packers; Raiders edge Titans

Sep

Limited Travis Konecny Jersey With the 2017 NFL season comes another exciting year of pigskin prognostications and football forecasts. That means 256 more regular-season chances to pick against the spread laid out by the fine folks in Vegas.

The best part about going into Week 1? Nothing is wrong yet. The worst part about going into Week 1? We’ve also got nothing right yet.

Hope you are ready for some pro football that actually counts. Here’s how we see this weekend’s full slate of games of going down.

The burning question in the AFC East is not whether New England will extend its NFL-record streak of consecutive division titles to nine. It’s whether the Patriots will do so with a perfect record. The only club with a snowball’s chance of catching New England is Miami, and oddsmakers are not even forecasting the Dolphins to finish above .500.

Limited Andre Branch Jersey Seriously, folks. If you needed the pictures from post-hurricane Florida to convince you that canceling the game in Miami and moving to their shared Week 11 bye was the right thing to do, I can’t help you. The way the storm kept shifting its path throughout the weekend is the exact reason the league was right Wednesday to tell the people who work for those teams, Don’t worry about football this weekend. There are more important things. And sure, the players will miss having the bye. But in the grand scheme of things, this was a no-brainer.

The Cowboys were once known as America’s Team back when Troy Aikman was quarterback.

While Vegas has the Ravens’ over-under at 8.5 wins, I feel as though my seven-victory projection could be optimistic. My thinking holds that Joe Flacco was declining even before a back injury forced him to miss training camp. Back problems tend to linger. Will Flacco hold up all season, and if he does, will he be better? I do have Baltimore beating Pittsburgh at least once for a ninth consecutive season, something they did twice even while going 5-11 in 2015 (one of those victories was with Michael Vick subbing for Ben Roethlisberger).

Now Dak Prescott is leading the charge to get the Cowboys back to America’s Team status. Prescott came in last year as a rookie and broke a bunch of records — including Aikman’s single-season rookie touchdown record.

Star quarterback Cam Newton won the NFL MVP award in 2015 after leading the Panthers to a 15-1 record and a trip to the Super Bowl. He’s another one of the most fun players to watch on the field, and his outfit choices will keep you entertained off it.

The Saints have finished each of the last three seasons 7-9, which is a test of every fan’s emotional fortitude. New Orleans fans sustain themselves these days by mocking fans of New Orleans’ biggest rivals, the Falcons, over Atlanta’s catastrophic Super Bowl LI loss.

Gerald McCoy is the Bucs’ defensive MVP NFL, and the team’s stint on Hard Knocks proves that he’s their MVP off the field, too. Whether he’s talking up Game of Thrones, testing the limits of what legal celebration dances are, boogying with fans, or just being a good dad to his sweet little kids, he’ll win you over.steelers_128

Roger Goodell: I’m convinced Colin Kaepernick will get signed

Sep

Colin Kaepernick is still a free agent, but NFL commissioner Roger Goodell thinks the quarterback will be signed again.

Goodell was on FS1’s “First Things First,” where he said it’s ultimately up to “football people” to determine who is — or isn’t — on a roster.

“I’m still convinced he’ll get that opportunity when the right Oliver Kylington Youth Jersey opportunity comes along, and that’s what our league is all Marcus Thornton Jersey about, as you know,” Goodell said.

Kaepernick came up when host Cris Carter asked Goodell why a subpar quarterback like Joe Webb is on a roster, but Kaepernick, who led the 49ers to a Super Bowl win, remained unsigned.

Things didn’t work out too well for Watson after that drive, however, as he finished 12 of 23 for 102 yards, with that TD pass and an interception in the Texans 29-7 loss. Savage, who went 7 for 13 for 62 yards with lost two fumbles before being benched, actually had a higher passer rating than Watson (66.8 to 60.4).

O’Brien did not say who would get the start in the Texans’ next game, Thursday night against the Bengals.

“I thought that Tom hung in there and played tough,” O’Brien told reporters. “We had a hard time protecting him, so I made the decision to go to Deshaun.”

The real problem may be that the Texans gave up 10 sacks, six on Savage, four on Watson. No quarterback looks good when he’s running for cover.

His season was basically a bad roller coaster ride.

I mean the Bucs lost three games in a row where he had a total of 13 carries and two catches, but then over the next three weeks he got 30 carries against Carolina, 26 against San Francisco, and 19 against Oakland. Call it a coincidence, but all I know is the Bucs also went 2-1 over that same span.

Chris Hogan Authentic Jersey Rodgers hurt his foot and missed the next four weeks only to come back to limited touches again in Weeks 12 and 13 after Martin had already returned to the lineup. Rodgers finished up the season by notching 32 carries and three receptions in weeks 15 and 16.

Andy Lee Authentic Jersey His season was basically a bad roller coaster ride.

Regardless, Rodgers made the most of the opportunities that he did get, to the extent his health allowed him to, after signing with the team last season. In the process he also showed that he could carry the load again if Martin ever faltered.

My approach with the franchise has been that I know business but I don’t want to micromanage the football, Khan said. I have tried to give our people the resources to be successful.

So, he keeps building the culture, integrating change, counting on Coughlin, general manager Dave Caldwell, and head coach Doug Marrone this season in their first as a working trio to turn the Jaguars upward.

The support for Lynch in Silver and Black has already been huge. His No. 24 quickly became one of the league’s top-selling jerseys and they were on full display in the crowd when training camp opened in Napa.

Fans were even approaching Lynch’s mother Delisa, affectionately known as Momma Lynch, to request autographs and pictures in the Napa Valley Marriott lobby, and she graciously obliged.

The A’s transferred right-handed pitcher Paul Blackburn to the 60-day disabled list to make room for their recalls to the 40-man roster.

Blackburn suffered a deep-bone bruise on his throwing hand after being struck by a comebacker on Aug. 22.

Liam Hendriks is aware of the platform that he stands on as a Major League Baseball player and he’s using it to raise funds and awareness for a number of causes he cares about.

Rossello warned that emergency services will stop when winds reach 50 mph.

Shelters are being opened in preparation for the storm, and the governor said all those who have vulnerable homes or flood prone areas need to start evacuation plans and head to shelters.

The incident occurred nearly two weeks after Bennett first sat during the national anthem before a preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams to raise awareness to racism and violence in the wake of the events in Charlottesville, Virginia. Bennett said he plans to sit during the anthem all season.

“This fact is unequivocally, without question why before every game, I sit during the national anthem — because equality doesn’t live in this country and no matter how much money you make, what job title you have, or how much you give, when you are seen as a ‘N—–,’ you will be treated that way,” Bennett wrote. “The system failed me. I can only imagine what Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, and Charleena Lyles felt.”
